The Putt

Eye,

ball,

eye,ball

eyeball;

these last 3 feet

on the par 4 18th,

this putt for birdie,

this putt for the championship;

464 yards,

1,392 feet

traversed with inimitable ease

leaving just these last 3;

back to the practice putt,

stroke,stroke,

swish,swish,

the hole’s diameter expands

then contracts

yet all remains the same;

breath,

posture;

breath,

aim-point;

pressure,

breathe,

breathe,

eyeball,

breathe,

eye,ball,

eye,

ball,

breathe;

play..
